A Simple Thank You

This is the card that I have made for the second Clearly Besotted Challenge - Seeing Spots.  My inspiration came from some cards made by Jennifer McGuire as part of the Pattern Play Online Card Class - you really should check these classes out they have some fabulous ideas and techniques.


I cut half inch strips of paper from my My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline paper pack and adhered them diagonally to a plain piece of paper.  I then used my Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents die to cut the leaves from the patchwork papers and my Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die to cut the spotty flowers.  The sentiment is a LOTV stamp.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Clearly Besotted Challenge 2 - Seeing Spots
Craft Your Passion Challenge 171 - Thank You
There She Goes Challenge 216 - Metal (metal brads)
Addicted to Stamps Challenge 54 - CAS
The Paper Shelter Challenge 121 - Clean and Simple
Jellypark Friends Challenge - Give Thanks
Case Study Challenge 150 -

Thank you for visiting me today, your company is very much appreciated.

I like how you made your own paper using paper strips - it's such a great idea for using some of those scraps and I like the look of it! A very clever and pretty clean design!

Hi Pauline, the Clearly Besotted leafy die is one of my favourites and I love how you've used it with the DP. Such a pretty card. Thank you for joining us at ATSM.
